Bears, Khalil Mack Agree Upon Record-Setting $141M Extension

Rams just set bar for Khalil Mack market with record deal

"The Bears made us an offer that we thought was really unique and very, very tough to say goodbye to a great player, but here we are today". The Bears signed Mack to a six-year, $141 million extension with $90 million guaranteed, a record for a defensive player, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Sports Chicago didn't even have its own camera at Halas Hall, with Hawk Harrelson Day going on and all. "I want to be the best at what I do, and that's just me. That's what comes with Mack". The Bears sent two first-round picks, a third-round pick, and a sixth-round pick to Oakland in exchange for Mack, a second-round pick, and a conditional fifth-round pick.

Pace had been following the deteriorating situation in Oakland ever since the start of training camp, when Mack's holdout became untenable and his future with the Raiders seemed uncertain. "I love the game of football", he said.

Trading Mack in a league where top players rarely leave their team is rare.

General manager Ryan Pace boiled down the essential parts of the trade and the implications for the team's drafts in the next two years. It all became a reality from there, with a deal early struck Saturday morning.

Players like Mack don't come around often. When it seemed like it was going that way, we decided to make a move with the trade. They all saw the possibilities in store. "That's just the way it goes". "It's an exciting time to be a Chicago Bear". It's asid to have been for two first round draft picks. The Raiders exercised the fifth-year option on Mack's rookie contract last summer, giving him a $13.8 million salary in 2018. The impact for the Bears defense is even greater. On and on it goes. Still, that doesn't mean it was impossible for the Raiders to keep Mack.

Trump freezes federal worker pay, citing 'serious economic conditions'
Trump said the pay freeze "will not materially affect our ability to attract and retain a well-qualified Federal workforce". In a notice to Congress Thursday, Trump cited "serious economic conditions" in cutting pay to civilian workers.

Mack is thrilled to join a resurgent Bears defense that ranked ninth in the National Football League in points allowed and 10th in total yards last season.

It's easy to imagine Bears fans, if given the same seat, having the same reaction as Sandy Mack Sr., the father of the team's newest and best pass rusher, Khalil Mack. "It was not a plan to trade him at all".

From there, the Bears can begin working with an elite talent in Mack. The pressure for first-round draft picks to hit is always high. Nagy brought his four young sons, who were planning to update their Madden rosters with 98-rated player.

Mack already has a pretty good idea of who he'll be lining up with.

"It has been a whirlwind", Mack said. It's phenomenal, I think, for the players. They were a unique match together with the right circumstances combining for a blockbuster deal. For Mack to play for the Bears.
